Hi Everybody, I passed the exam with 91%,I found that the exam is not so easy, larg portion of questions are scenarios which are lengthy, they really slow down my reading speed , since the time is 75 minutes, I have only 10 minutes left when I finished the first round and then checked thosed marked ones, until the last minute, I am even not sure how well i did on the exam, and it turns out the score is ok. i have around two months time to prepare for the exam and this newsgroup definitely help me from the two month ago when i decide to take the test, now I am moving onto partII, like two month ago, better do some research first. for the book i read for the first part is Monson's EJB,Gof's pattern,Mark Cade's study preparation and other online links.
Congratulations guowei, Great Score. Any tips for preparation? Regards Durvasula

I think I spent too much time on security and protocools,cos the exam really require very basic knowledge on these topics, and same is true for messaging.but on the other hand to have a indepth study of these topics is a very good experience, i think as an architect, he needs to know these things, however,for the exam,avoid being overprepared. Best, GW
